3. Manual Transmission
While most of these trucks will be fitted with a six-speed automatic, a manual transmission will be offered, with a few caveats.
Only extended cab work trim two-wheel drive trucks fitted with a four-cylinder engine will be available with the stick shift, a bid from GM to make sure that fleet buyers will be satisfied.
Those qualifications will deter most buyers from the manual model, but those looking for a cheap, fuel-efficient, bare bones pickup truck will still have the option to row their own gears.
